Mayamiko produces clothing, accessories and home wares ethically made in Malawi.
Established by Paola Masperi, Mayamiko info is an ethical and sustainable woman’s wear and lifestyle brand, producing clothes, accessories and homeware, lovingly made in Malawi by their team of tailors, pattern cutters and seamstresses.
Their collections are cross-seasonal and inspired by African artisanal traditions and prints, with ethical trading and sustainability at our core. Their collections are designed for the global modern woman, while giving ode to their birthplace through the use of traditional African techniques and local printed fabrics, locally referred to as Chitenje.
As they continue to grow, their vision is to bring you a lovingly designed selection of unique products, made by handpicked artisans all over the globe. At the moment you can choose from embroidery from Sri Lanka, handloom from Myanmar, reclaimed jewelry from Laos and upcycled silk from Italy.
They strongly believe that ethical and sustainable production is the only acceptable way of producing, and feel that shopping ethically should not compromise the quality or design of the product but rather enhance and add value to it.
"Providing education and skills creates a way out of poverty that is sustainable and not dependent on aid."
